    If you were wanting to create an offshore entity, get a bank account for it, keep everything private... what type of Attorney (in the US) should you be looking to contact?

    Be careful to setting up overseas. The attorney needs to be reputable. I am familiar with cases that the attorneys have ripped of the client to the tune of 6 figures. There are many of the same benefits (not all) in Nevada and Wyoming. There are some good companies in Nevada that do these type of thing. If you havent looked into the benefits and pitfalls of overseas it is worth the investigation. Kust look at what happened to the CEO of Mcaffee, he thinks he lost millions to the Belixe government.

    CEO of McAfee? The creator of McAfee (John McAfee) hasn't been in contact with McAfee (the Anti-Virus software) since 1994. After he lost 90% of his fortune I guess he wanted to do a rather chill/groupie live and just experiment with new drugs and of course chicks.

    Anyways, about the OP. I do really suggest you to talk with a lawyer that is experienced in what he's doing and that has a good reputation. Try and use someone that is recommended by a good friend, or check out for people on quora. I heard that he's quite good http://www.quora.com/Dana-H-Shultz .

    Ya I worry about just using a random attorney/site online... seems like most of them are scams.

    The account you linked on Quora looks great. Really appreciate it!
